Sun Valley...

We took a quick trip up to Sun Valley this weekend, just Friday and Saturday. We went up to see all of the Christmas lights and hang out with Dean and Alberto.
I wish this picture would have turned out better. On your way into Sun Valley from Ketchum there's a big red barn with a wreath in lights.

There were ice sculptures all over the resort. If I would have been thinking I would have taken pictures Friday when we got there instead of waiting until after dark.

I should have gotten a little closer to this one, there are actual ornaments stuck in the ice.

There were snow sculptures all over too.

The lights were shining on this one just a little too bright, so it kept messing up the flash. If you can't tell, it's Alberto sitting on Santa's lap.

You could also sit in the sleigh, but after listening to Alberto whine about being cold from sitting on Santa's lap we weren't about to try it out!

Jen's Birthday...

We had Jen's birthday Friday night at Mom's house. The boys were so much fun. The make me tired just watching them. The only time they stopped, was when it was time to eat.

Kaden & Mason
Tim's Three Turkeys!
We should have taken this picture with Tim, the boys and the turkey, then it would have been Jen's Four Turkeys!

Tim has been teaching the boys some wrestling moves at home!
Once they got started Mason wanted Justin to keep flipping him over and over. Justin's a pretty great Uncle...he stuck it out the longest playing with the boys.
Just like at my birthday, Mason had to try on Jen's shoes. He makes a pretty cute Cowboy!

It's Still Rock'N'Roll to Me...

We got lucky again with free concert tickets! My mom's boss wasn't able to use his tickets to see Billy Joel last night, so he gave them to my mom and told her to take the kids and have fun! So we did!! What an amazing concert! I loved that there was no set play list, he would just play whatever the audience yelled out. At first we thought the seats could have been better, because all we could see was the back of his head. A couple of songs later, the piano turned and we had great seats! Thanks Bert!!

My Guitar Heros...

Even though we had Guitar Hero III for the PS3 on our Christmas list, we couldn't wait, sorry mom! We almost bought it the day it came out, but were able to hold off until now. It's a good thing we have the DVR to record our shows, because I can see this game becoming slightly addicting!! We called Justin's younger brother, Josh, to let him know we bought it, and the first thing he said was "Really?? Can I come over??" Minutes later, he was at our front door!! Rock on!

Garage Cleaning...

We finally did it. After having to get up early for a couple weeks now to start the car and defrost the windows, we finally cleaned out the garage. I have to admit in the four years we've lived in our house, we've only parked in the garage a handful of times, and I'm not sure we've ever parked both cars in the garage, EVER. I couldn't wait to share our accomplishment, so I called Jacque. She was so impressed, and surprised I'm sure, she came over to check it out as soon as Katie Jo got up from her nap. Jacque took pictures, but forgot to email them to me before she left for the week...so pictures to come!

Since we don't have our own kids I can't stop taking pictures of our nieces and nephews. Tuesday Julie brought her four kids, Sarah, Emma, Timothy, and Alex over to trick-or-treat us because they weren't sure they would make it over on Halloween.
Sarah wouldn't smile, she'd been sick all week and didn't feel good.

Maddie came over on Halloween to see us. She loved playing in the bucket of play-doh while she waited for Uncle Justin to get home so he could see her in her bunny costume. I'm a little disappointed in myself that I didn't get a picture of her with her little ears on!

I'm not sure where this face came from. I don't even remember her making this face, I couldn't stop laughing when I found it on the camera! That's my Maddie!!
